United Kingdom 2010 Range Rover Sport TDV8 Autobiography Santorini Black
Warranty

Hi,
Has anyone used Auto-protect for a RRS autobiography 2010 MY for warranty ? been shopping around but I am shocked how many companies use the sliding scale for parts contributions "basically meaning I could potentially be paying upto 80% towards parts ( no thanks ) !!!!

cheers

I don't know about Auto-protect and I didn't know any different when I bought my RRS in March 2016, but the non-LR garage I bought it from supplied me with a 15 month warranty from The Autogroup. It has proved to be a very beneficial arrangement from my perspective. Since I've had the RRS, I have had numerous issues (some of which like headlights are not covered by the warranty) and to date they have paid out some £2300 to me. The cost of the first 15 months cover for their "Ultimate" cover (the top level they do) according to my sales invoice was £470. At renewal they asked if I would like to extend it and I agreed a deal with them for 2 further years at a cost of £500. So total cost to me is £970 and I am covered until June 2019 on a car that will then be 11 years old! I call that a result. The list of the major work includes: N/S lower suspension arm, N/R rear wheel bearing, O/S front wheel bearing, front differential replacement, O/S front lower suspension arm, steering column lower u/j, alternator replacement - all covered by the warranty.

Of course its not the same level of cover as a LR warranty but I am fairly happy. And I am not aware of any sliding scale for parts contribution. The claims process is quite straightforward.

The only area where I have some concern is that they insist on using aftermarket parts if available and only LR parts as a last resort. But as it is the LR part that has prematurely broken (or I wouldn't be making a claim) this really doesn't worry me too much. In fact the reconditioned front diff, according to the indie I use, is better than the LR product as the parts used to recondition it are of better quality.

All in all I am happy with The Autogroup and I'm bloody glad I have it and could extend it. These cars should not break down with the regularity that they do but as they do I wouldn't be without a warranty. Robin

Thank you I will obtain a quote from Autogroup. It sounds like you have had a good level of service from them, which is all we can ask from a warranty.

In terms of crankshafts, the 3.0 engine is known to suffer from cranks snapping. I however have the TDV8 3.6 engine which in turn has its own known issues with turbos. the 3.6 engine does suffer from crank issues but this is normally bearing failures as opposed the snapping cranks.

thank you for the replies so far

Haha - Sorry Andy Smile

Looking at the terms and conditions page for The Autogroup, I didn't see anything about part contributions...but it would appear that clause 27 and/or 37 may preclude cover for the V6 crankshaft.

But as Bulldog says, our TDV8s don't have the same issues. They have issues - lots of them (as you know). Just not the same ones Whistle Rolling with laughter

Sorry - forgot to post picture:
